NAME
     modstat -- display status of loaded kernel modules

     modstat [-n] [name]

DESCRIPTION
     The modstat utility displays the status of any kernel modules present in the kernel.

     The options are as follows:

     modstat includes:

     CLASS     Module class, such as "vfs", "driver", "exec", "misc" or "secmodel".

     SOURCE    Where the module was loaded from.  "builtin" indicates that the module was built
	       into the running kernel.  "boot" indicates that the module was loaded during sys-
	       tem bootstrap.  "filesys" indicates that the module was loaded from the file sys-
	       tem.

     SIZE      Size of the module in bytes.

     REFS      Number of references held on the module.  Disabled builtin modules will show a
	       count of -1 here.
